Health podcaster?

For our upcoming film on diabetes:  The team is interested in finding a podcaster who does investigative reporting on health-related topics. Could be an interesting person to profile for the film, if he/she is compelling on screen, frequently podcasts about diabetes / health generally, and could ask the hard questions that the audience watching the film wants to ask. Do you know of anyone who might fit this category? See More

Brian Knappenberger, who directed my ICE WARRIORS film last year, tells me he is staffing up for a new series, describing it as “investigative/political/civil liberties with a heavy layer of tech. It explores abuses of power mostly around technology but also subjects like privatized prisons, etc.”  I don’t know more about the project than this, but Brian is a brilliant director and his Luminant Media company does great work.  He's  looking for "pretty much the whole range of…


sad new - John Siceloff

Posted on March 10, 2015 at 9:34am 0 Comments

With great sadness I’m writing to let you know that John Siceloff passed away last Friday after battling a fast-growing cancer.  John, who taught for us at the CPB/PBS Producers Workshop at WGBH and at the special Workshop we did for Puerto Rico’s public television, was a wonderful, caring soul who’d worked for more than 20 years as an award-winning broadcast news producer, for ABC, NBC, CBS, and PBS, where he launched Now with Bill Moyers.  After years of journalism in the US,…

Thanks so much Judith! I'm *beaming* over here.

Thanks Judith! Hope all's well for you and yours.

Thank you Judith!

Thanks! Yes, we've had a ton of press. You'd think that I'd know how to talk to the media (because I AM the media) but I never really learned how to be an interviewee until now. I have an Ovee screening tomorrow, and 4 more events in 4 cities in the coming week. Then I guess I should go make another show.

Thanks Judith.  I am sooo looking forward to getting funding for Running To Win because I know that it's gonna be a eye opening, entertaining documentary.

Hi Judith, yes.  I do know Katie.  She's great.  Her stories for Earthfix are quite good; getting some national play on Newshour.   All is well here at KCTS9.  We're a bit soggy this time of year, but looking forward to summer in June...er, July...well Septemer for sure.

Thank you so much Judith.  What a great way to keep in touch!  (Also- the Applied Economics sounds fancier than it is...it's Cornell's name for their business major =)

Thanks!  IT's been an amazing few weeks.

Thanks Judith!  It was definitely down to the wire - and I was worried!  But folks came through.  I'm so grateful!

At 11:03am on July 17, 2012, Julia Elliott said…

Thanks for the welcome, Judith!  I've been doing a lot of kid raising and very little filmmaking in the past few years, but I'm trying to get back in the loop.  I just finished a web-based video project that I'd love to get the Producers Workshop community's advice on.  Specifically, I'm trying to drum up web traffic, and ideally find a broadcast partner.  I'll post some videos and the link to the site.  Hope you are well!
